Functional Medicine refers to a practice that centers on the patient, looking into their physiology (how their body’s systems are working) and symptoms to find the root causes of any illness present. It is patient-focused and involves a caring partnership between practitioner and patient. The practitioner typically takes more time to listen to the patient’s history, environmental conditions, and daily lives than standard medical visits. These are important influences in one’s long-term health. The practitioner also utilizes standard and non-standard lab work to get a more full understanding and basis for a personalized, rational and sequential treatment plan to optimize the patient's health and well being.
My practice offers an eclectic blend of medical traditions from Asia, Europe and the U.S. including 9 different styles of Acupuncture, German Biological Medicine, European Drainage Homeopathy, Orthomolecular Medicine, Chinese & Western Herbal Medicine, Targeted Amino Acid Therapy, Whole Food Nutritional Therapy and diet and life style counseling. I have advanced training in hormone balancing, detoxification therapy, Hepatitis C treatment, and neurological acupuncture for conditions such as stroke, spinal cord injuries, MS and Parkinson’s.
Most clients visit our clinic for evaluation and treatment but I also am happy to provide phone and email consultation and guidance. Finances are an issue for almost everyone these days and I want patients to walk out of my office feeling like they got what they needed at a good value. Rather than telling you what to do, I like to explain what I see, how it fits together with your experience, understand what your priorities and limitations are and then create a plan based on collaborative decision making.
There are general principals to the practice of natural medicine, however, every individual will need a different starting place and process depending on their history and the nature of their health issue. Having a broad viewpoint and depth of knowledge allows me to be flexible with my patients in different phases of their life and healing.
Each Health Spring client benefits from our commitment:
- To make the patient feel safe, comfortable and cared for.
- To listen to what the patient is saying and listen for what the patient is asking for.
- To practice healing rather than medicine.
- To work with the patient rather than doing something to or for them.
- To provide expert information, encouragement & guidance to help the patient achieve their health & healing goals.
- To address the patient's concerns.
- To relieve the patient's symptoms.
- To work with the patient on core fundamental issues and practices that build a stable foundation for continuing health and healing.
